Creative Weekend

In preparation for Father's Day, I had a "masculine cards" class this weekend so I have a couple of those cards to show you. I was also able to sit down and do a little card-making yesterday while Lily played all by herself in the living room, with the occasional visit from her, I'm assuming to check on me and make sure I was doing alright playing by myself.:o) It is such a blessing that she finally feels comfortable playing on her own for periods of time rather than clinging to me every second. Another phase I approach with joy and yet a little bit of sadness. Anyway, here are some pictures for you...

I am sending this one to my cousin up in Oregon.

I made this sympathy card to send to the Chapman family.

I saw a sample of this card online and just had to copy it, with only a couple of small changes. I love the colors...even Robert commented on how pretty it was. He said it looks "Christmas-y". Hmmm...I may have to keep that in mind for when the time comes to start my Christmas cards.:o)

I made this card to send to my friend Jill in Seattle for her birthday this week. She also happens to check this blog every once in a while, so if you see this my friend, here is your card and Happy Birthday!

This is a "double pocket" card. Can you believe you can make this card with only one sheet of 8 1/2 x 11 paper? So pretty and so much easier than it looks.

And here are two samples of the masculine cards from my class on Saturday. Robert will be getting the one with the star...a bit of an homage to his love for the Dallas Cowboys. Shhhh...don't tell him!;o)

A more masculine version of the "double pocket" card.

And for your final viewing pleasure...miss Lily showing you her faces once more.
A toned down version of "Psycho Face".

"Turtle Face"

"Kissy Lips"

And the most beautiful smile ever. Isn't she just the best?!?!

Love the cards - and I think the sympathy card you made was a lovely thought, with a beautiful verse on the front.
